Rhona Morris rated Hills Residential 5 stars

Communication incredible... hills residential keep you updated every step of the process. Fast efficient and very friendly service. Dealt with Leah who was extremely knowledgeable, dealing with my solicitors, my buyer and myself. I can't rate her high enough, she is a great asset to the firm.

Katie from the lettings department was absolutely brilliant in securing a lovely rental property or us. She answered all our questions with expert knowledge and made us feel so at ease and really enjoyed the whole viewing.

Andrew Haworth rated Hills Residential 2 stars

Really shabby service! Once the property was sold I felt high & dry! Could never get through direct to contacts I had mob no's for, and most of the time took ages to get back to me, when messages left. As I live far away I asked for utility readings to be logged on exchange, and I'm still awAiting them, I m presuming the new tenants are living there at my cost! Wouldn't recommend them, initially a good start but over time I spent chasing all the time! They didn't even phone me on exchange/completion, Feel very bad value for money, There are quite a few good local Companies nearby that initially impressed me but I went with Hills as the feedback was slightly better, Not now!!!!

This was a probate sale and the guys at Hills were understanding and empathetic that it was a difficult time. They marketed the property well and moreover got offers quickly whilst keeping me up to date. I was really impressed and would recommend Hills Residential to anyone.
